Everybody says it, so I’m not going to. I’m not going to apologize or make excuses as to why I haven’t been keeping up with posting new bits of information or progress on my assignments, I’m just going to try to do it better. Where is the source of this enlightenment coming from you ask? One of the teachers at VFS introduced me to stretchdaily.com, a website created by a VFS grad with the goal to post something new every day.
So to begin my own quest in regular posts, I’m going to start with a list of other sites that have been noted as noteworthy by classmates and Brett as sources of news, information and examples of what you can do in interactive design.
